This Component Plug-in provides the capability to display interactive charts in Appian using Google Charts. It offers support for the following types of charts:
These charts work on all Appian user interfaces and with the Appian mobile application. They are easy to configure and a sample application is provided as part of the download. The plug-in can be used to set up to provide interactive charts with drill-down capabilities and allow the event context to pass into any SAIL component(s) on the same or a different interface.
How to use the component:

Thanks for reaching out. Most of the charts in the plug-in are interactive and can perform same operations as that of Appian's saveInto. Meaning, you can perform any save operation. Also talking about the download ability, yes it is present in the component. Still if you are not able to download the chart in any format, that is probably because the google chrome is suppressing the download. In the current implementation, you won't be able to use this functionality because google has suspended the way of downloading a file which we were using. I am adding a screenshot below for you reference.
Are any of the charts interactive where if you clicked for example a slice of a pie it can retrieve the data for that slice? Return it in a list view? Also, I see in some of the charts an ability to download as PDF. Is that in this smart service as well? Thanks!!
Thanks for the reply, turns out it was a geocoding api restriction i hadn't stopped. All good now.
Google has recently dropped a new update where they changed the libs of Google Geo chart. We have updated our plug-in as well to cater the new requirement. Once you update your plug-in with the latest version available on AppMarket, you should stop facing the issue.
When you are trying to download the image in Google Chrome, do you see a message in console which tells that download is disallowed? If yes then this is happening because the google chrome is suppressing the download. If that is the case, then, in the current implementation, you won't be able to use this functionality because google has suspended the way of downloading a file which we were using. I am adding a screenshot below for you reference.
Currently having issues with the geo chart markers display mode not displaying markers, is this an issue related to the update?
We tried exporting the chart to PNG or PDF but its not working. We even tried with the sample application that comes with the Plugin but on clicking "Eport PDF" or "Export PNG" buttons also, it doesnt export that image. Am I missing anthing? Could you please suggest what should happen on clicking those buttons?
Is there any way to get the chart to link to something when parts of it are clicked? I was trying to use the onSelection to no avail? Thank you!
Hi Asad Khan,
It's a good suggestion and we have thought about it previously. However, as per the google policy, it's not allowed. Thanks!
would it make sense to keep the related libraries in the plugin to avoid disruption. Some customers are using it in production, therefore it would be good to avoid any new updates from Google which could impact the plugin.
Hi Asad Khan,
Yes. This is because Google dropped a new update and in that, they changed the package of Geo chart. We have submitted a new update to the AppMarket and it will be available for you to use post approval from Appian.
Thank you for your patience.
GeoChart has stopped working. I guess some libs got updated and the calls are not valid anymore.
I haven't tried it in our chart yet, but I believe this will give us exactly what we need. Thank you so much for the quick response!
